The Bohra Bazaar took place at Frere Hall this weekend and attracted many people to this fun filled 2-day Festival. The purpose of this festival was to promote entrepreneurship amongst the women of the Bohra community and give them a platform to showcase their products.

I visited this festival on Saturday when it was drizzling so it wasn’t too hot which made it a much more pleasurable experience. There were hundreds of stalls scattered across the grounds and many of them were food stalls so I spent the first few hours searching for some delicious food! The best part was that nothing was priced over Rs.200 which is why I probably bought stuff from 10 different stalls (Bye Bye Gym)

I had some really good Bohra Fried Chicken from the Ezzi Catering Stall which was for only Rs.90! It was perfectly spiced, tender and crispy from the outside. Their stall was one of the most crowded stalls because their menu was authentic and reasonably priced!

Next, I had some AMAZING pasta from the Miss Eataly Stall that was mildly spicy and extremely saucy. I loved the chili flakes on top of it which prevented the pasta from being too bland. The chicken chunks were perfectly cooked and succulent and the serving size was quite good considering the price (Rs.200) Overall, a decent and economical dish!

By the time I got to the arts and crafts stall, it had begun to rain a little so I decided to pause my little food tour and head on over to the Burhani water park stall. I got to know a lot about this hidden gem in Balochistan that has some amazing water rides and slides. While chatting with the representatives, I spotted a Juice Stand and decided to quench my thirst. I got to the stall and found a sweet old lady ready to serve me.She had a variety of Limca flavors (got to know it was a Limca stand when I got there) that she was selling in bottles for Rs.150 and one glass for Rs.30. I bought the Mango Limca and it was quite refreshing even though it was extremely diluted because of the melted ice.

In the end, I was pleased with my Bohra Food Tour but Karachi Eat is on another level (In other words, I can’t decide which one is a better event). I know that this Bohra Bazaar wasn’t focusing on food only but I still felt that most of the stalls were selling the same thing at different prices. So let’s just call it a tie!
